Paper Players Sketch Challenge

Hi back to share a card with you I made following the sketch this week at Paper Players.

Here is the sketch.

I decided it was time to start things about my Christmas cards, so I went with a Christmas theme on this one.
The papers are from last years CTMH Frosted paper pack.
I cut the snowflake using a Cameo Silhouette file.  You can't really see them but I added small pearl around the tips of the snowflake.
The stamp is a Gina K Design stamp.

Thank you for taking to the time to stop by for a visit.

Some Fun Cards

Hello, I don't know about you, but sometimes it is difficult to make a child card so I have a few to share with you today that could be used for a child.

I liked this bright shiny epoxy clown sticker and he had all the colors to go with my polka dot paper.

I might just use this one for my grown son since he really enjoys fishing.  The papers and the image are from Nit Wits "Gone Fishing" collection.
This one I created using Cricut Craft Room software and the Kate's ABCs cartridge.  I welded the letters together.  The Happy is from Create a Critter.
Here is how it opens.
And one more plain one that also had a fishing theme.  I will add a sentiment later.
This one may be a little more appropriate for my son who will turn 44 at the end of this year.

Well thanks for taking the time to stop by, I hope you all had a great weekend.

A Variety of cards

Well once again I am way behind in posting cards on my blog, so you catch up a bit I thought I would do a group post of several cards I have made recently.
Here are a couple of "Thinking of You" cards
I made the background paper on this card using some spray inks I picked up at Michaels and watercolor paper.  I really love playing around and making background papers, not like I don't have a room full of paper, LOL it is just fun to see what kind of patterns turn out. The center label I cut and wrote using my Explore machine, I love this option! The butterfly is a My Mind's Eye brad.
I love this lime green and purple combination. The hummingbird image are rub-ons that bought a very lone time ago.  You can't really see it in the picture but they are sparkly.
I wanted to cut something with small line with my Explore to see how it cut so I cut this birdcage, this one cut fine but it turns out my Explore does have a problem and it is being replaced. :(.  I have really enjoyed it for the month I had and I can't wait to get one that really cuts great like it should.  The Thank you is written using my Explore.
I will add a sentiment when I decide how to use this card.  It has lots of sparkle on it.  The paper is from the DCWV Sweet Stack.

Well thanks for taking the time to stop by.  I will try and post some more cards over the next few days.

Kokopelli for Viva la Verve

Hello I am back to share a card with you that I made following a sketch from Viva la Verve.
They post 4 sketches each month and will pick a winner at the end of the month to receive a $100 gift card for their products.  I got to say I love their stamps although I did not use one on this card.  
I made the background paper for this card using watercolor paper and Tim Holtz Distress paints.  I am really into creating paper with watercolor paper, I love the different looks you get.
This background colors reminded me of the southwest so that is why I chose the Kokopelli stamp from My Heart Stamps For You.
I will probably add a Verve sentiment when I decide how I will use this card.

Thanks for stopping by and remember you have till July 31st to join in the fun.

Happy Birthday Lemon Stack

Hello, back again with another card to share.
This one is kind of bright and sparkly.  
 The "M" is there temporarily till I decide who I will be sending it to then I will add the appropriate letter.   I embossed the center oval with an Anna Griffin folder.  I love this folder.
The paper is from DCWV Lemon Flower stack.
This follows the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge over at the Paper Players.
For this one I used the far right hand row Birthday-Green-Embossing.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
